Mercury comes un-retrograde in the next few days, but just barely.

The 1st Gravedigger is arguing a point — usually depicted as a grungy, dirty individual — yet the character argues using logic punctuated with Latin rhetoric terms. Sort of an academic show-off, you ask me.
The biggest challenge, to my fine Virgo friends, at this moment? Show some restraint. The biggest problem with showing some restraint? No one seems to notice.
All I could see was a tiny bit of script poking out from underneath the woman’s tank–top. Looked like, “Ph.D” in poorly executed tattoo script. Tattoo “Lit” always fascinates me, so I politely asked, and her reply? “You’ve seen the Magritte painting, has the line, ‘This is not,’” which I completed in its original French, badly mispronouncing the second negative. “Ceci n’est pas une pipe,” is the quote from surrealist Magritte.
Fishing gets better about now. Simple as that. Virgo time means more fishing, or, at least, a few good trips. In another few weeks, it won’t be bitterly summer hot. Hot, sure, but hovering under 100, cool enough. I discovered, accidentally of course, a great aid for fishing: girlie brand SPF 100 spray-on sun-block. Aerosol can, so it’s easy to apply. Spray on, just look at the nozzle, close my eyes, hold my breath and it coats my face. Seriously amazing stuff. Before my discovery I had never used a feminine-brand of sun-screen, or for that matter, I never used anything that was 100 SPF. My fishing shirts and hats are usually only rated 50 SPF. To be honest, until I started writing this, I didn’t know what SPF even stood for, but I would suppose, more is better, better protection, right?
The Virgo secret of survival is that girlie-brand spray-on sun-screen. SPF 100. We were out on the boat for two days. Not even a whisper of a burn. As we get ready for the next few weeks? Mercury? Remember him? SPF 100 is not too much protection. It took me three days to shower off that stuff; had to scrape it off with a trowel, almost.
I am totally unsure of the name of the restaurant, but it probably had “Wok” in its title. Golden Wok, or Wok’n’Roll, or some similar appellation, got an image? Thai, Vietnamese, Cambodian, essentially Pac–Rim food. It was the first time I’d ever been in that one place. Austin introduced me to their finer points — of some Asian Cuisine — so I was sort of familiar. However, this is Texas, and South Texas, at that.
First Clown (Gravedigger):
Why, because ’a was mad. ’A shall recover his wits there, or if ’a do not, ’tis no great matter there.
Mad dogs and Englishmen?
Be aware, Leo dear, that the mercurial issues will follow you around, and there’s no need to get heated about it. Then, too, enjoy the good birthday wishes!
August 22, 2017, at 5:20 PM CDT — official, when Virgo starts. So? Mercury is still retrograde, and that’s not getting any better. Not really getting any worse, but there’s that extra layer of Virgo anxiety because Mercury is in a problematic state.
Mercury goes “Retrograde,” moving east, from August 12 to September 5, with the pattern starting at 11 Virgo, and sinking back as far as 28 Leo before it’s all said and done. Again.
Mars brings up a point that only you — maybe me, too — but probably, only a Leo can see the inconsistent issue here. Instead of doing a Leo thing and calling attention to the inconsistencies? You know? Remember, Mars? Let it ride. Other folks will figure it soon enough. They’re just not as quick as The Leo.
One parapsychologist professional I’ve worked alongside for years, it is the same line every Mercury Retrograde, “Slow down, take a chill pill.” That does work, to certain extent, but I complied a whole book’s worth of advice about Mercury Retrograde, and this one? Takes more than, “Slow down and chill” pill. Besides, what self-respecting Virgo would ever “Chill” when a perfectly punctuated panic layered with a side of drama is a lot more fun? I’m thinking, “Zombie Apocalypse” scenario, am I right?
I was trying to think of an easier, simpler way to say it. I don’t have that. For The Leo?
Don’t get married to it.
Not now, not this week. Great ideas. Court, spoon, date, pledge, suggest, coerce, if need be, but no, not getting married. The term, I chose it carefully, as “marriage,” despite modern indications otherwise, tends to be assumed as a permanent decision — which it is! So, my Leo suggested patter? This week? Don’t get married to it.
Or, in other words? Use a pencil. Not a pen. Ink is permanent. Pencil can be erased and adjusted as need be.
They say miracles are past, and we have our philosophical persons, to make modern and familiar, things supernatural and causeless.

Means the quote and the planets, or whatever they are calling Pluto this week, means it all is connected.
Pretend it’s one of those moments wherein you’re waiting for the rest of us to acknowledge your greatness.
